Martes flavigula, commonly known as the Yellow-Throated Marten or the Himalayan Marten, is a species of marten found in Asia. It ranges through the temperate montane forests of the Himalayas, Southeast Asia, and East Asia, including the Russian Far East and the Korean Peninsula. It is generally solitary. It is distinguished from the Stone Marten by its large size and long limbs and tail; its tail makes up nearly half of the total body length. An adult M. flavigula may weigh as much as 3.4 kg, and may be more than a meter from tip to tail.
M. f. robinsoni, a subspecies resident on the island of Java in Indonesia, is listed as endangered by the IUCN.
